Moments after a conflict ensued, in which Del Rio took down the World Heavyweight Champion, Rey Mysterio emerged.

Tyler Reks def. Chris Masters (WATCH | PHOTOS) After brutalizing Kaval and stealing his spot on Team SmackDown on the Oct. 15 edition of SmackDown, Tyler Reks made it clear to the WWE Universe that he was here to make a serious impact. The dreadlocked devastator brought this focus to “WWE Superstars,” but he was locking up with a much larger opponent in the form of Chris Masters. As a man who could top Reks in the power department, The Masterpiece had the ability to stop the destructive Superstar, but Reks refused to be outdone. Displaying some serious strength of his own, the California native was able to hoist Masters above his head and slam him to the mat for a commanding victory.
MVP def. Curt Hawkins (WATCH | PHOTOS) It was only three weeks ago on “WWE Superstars” that Curt Hawkins brutally ended his association with his former tag team partner Vance Archer.

Realizing that Hawkins was attempting to earn some attention by humiliating him, The Franchise Playa brought his A-game and stopped his hungry, young opponent with The Playmaker.
Zack Ryder def. Tyson Kidd (WATCH | PHOTOS) As lifelong friends that practically grew up in a wrestling ring, The Hart Dynasty earned their reputation in WWE based on their flawless teamwork. But ever since dropping the WWE Tag Team Championships at Night of Champions, the team of Tyson Kidd & David Hart Smith has completely lost their ability to focus. The pink and black duo’s woes continued tonight as Kidd tried his luck in singles action against Zack Ryder and was defeated by The Long Island Loudmouth after a miscommunication with Smith. After the bout, the pair nearly came to blows before being separated by Natalya.
Mark Henry def. Jey Uso (WATCH | PHOTOS) How do you overpower The World’s Strongest Man? That was the question on Jey Uso’s mind as he stepped into the ring with the massive Mark Henry. Unfortunately for the tag team specialist, Uso couldn’t figure out an answer to that problem.

Due to Ken Anderson suffering a concussion, he will not be working the November 7th TNA Turning Point PPV.
SPOILER: TNA shot an angle at last night's tapings, putting Matt Morgan into the match to challenge for the TNA Title against Jeff Hardy.
UPDATE: There is currently no timetable for when Ken Anderson will return to action in TNA. Anderson suffered a concussion, and was going to get it checked out this week. Once he is examined, he and TNA will have a better idea of when he can return to the ring.
The word is that TNA wants to be careful with the concussion issue for obvious reasons, and that is why they decided to go with Matt Morgan vs. Jeff Hardy.

William Regal talks about being arrested, more Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 10/27/2010 at 11:36 AM
The Sun in the UK has a new interview up with WWE star William Regal. Regal tells them that addiction to pills turned him “insane” and at that time in his life, “life meant nothing.”
Regal tells a story from his time in WCW on a flight from Tokyo, Japan to Detroit in the late 1990′s. He said:
“I was rather ‘out West’ on booze. I went into the plane toilet and I had my foot in the door, which hadn’t shut. I was relieving myself when the hostess tapped me on the shoulder and I spun round. Next thing I know I wake up in a jail cell, in Anchorage, Alaska, when I should have been in Detroit. I had no memory of why I was there. I was in an orange jump suit and was handcuffed to another guy and taken to court. They were going along the line of prisoners reading out charges. I was laughing, thinking, ‘This is all a terrible mistake’. Then they read my charge out: ‘Urinating on a flight attendant.’”
Regal admitted he used steroids in the past but says it’s “not my game anymore.”
Regal was told in 2003 that he needed a heart transplant but never went through with the operation. He told The Sun:
“I was stunned. They told me I’d never wrestle again, they found only about 15 per cent of my heart was functioning. The heart’s fine. I don’t trust what doctors say now.”
The article also notes that Regal has agreed on a new three and a half year deal with WWE.
- As noted earlier, CM Punk underwent an MRI yesterday. Word going around is that Punk was experiencing pain in his hip. As a precaution, WWE pulled him from this weekend’s live events and ordered the MRI.
- As noted before, The Undertaker is being evaluated this week to see if he needs surgery. Taker could be out of action for four months and the feeling is that they need to get the surgery taken care of now so he can be back in time for WrestleMania season.
More wrestlers comment on Undertaker/Lesnar Posted by Roscoe De Soto on 10/26/2010 at 12:49 PM
Right After Wrestling with Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas on SIRIUS Radio 98 got comments from wrestlers / producers about the Brock Lesnar / Undertaker altercation:
LANCE STORM - I was surprised. the skeptical mind of a worker was always wondering whether it was a work or legit. I'm obviously leaning towards work now. i cant see anything come out of this, but it sure made me think. I can't see Taker being that unprofessional to confront him and say anything than pleasant words if there wasn't a plan in the works. Taker is a professional and Brock had just lost a tough fight so I wouldn't see him doing something like that if there wasn't plans in the future or hopeful plans in the future.
DAVE LAGANA - It's amazing that a third party, independently produced, non agenda based video was able to create more buzz about Wrestlemania or any PPV than WWE can create in one 30 second clip. It was pretty cool. I was jazzed to see and the fact that it has a million views in just under two days shows the power of what it did in that video.
COLT CABANA - He's the Undertaker he can say what he wants to say and Brock Lesnar is Brock Lesnar and can do what he wants to do. If it was something set up to get into the wrestling ring like good for them for getting a buzz. If it's not than whatever, all Undertaker did was say a couple of words and now all of a sudden he's got this giant buzz on the internet. Whatever it is it's getting some buzz. It didn't hurt anybody physically, mentally or emotionally I don't think so good for them. What am I gonna do, hope both their careers turn out well. Their both millionaires and are doing awesome so their doing it right. Maybe I should challenge Brock Lesnar after a match also so I can have some buzz like them.
BOOKER T - It's kind of bizarre. It kind of came out of left field. If it was what I think it was, it was a well kept secret. It was interesting, Undertaker seemed like he was a little taken back. Maybe it was because of the outcome of the fight between Cain and Brock. Who is to say, I'm really not sure it was just really bizarre.

Matt Morgan: "Cain was great tonight. Brock will get that title back though. Both guys were humble in post fight promos too. Hard to hate Cain,class act."
To follow up on the news that WWE has contacted Brock Lesnar about wrestling The Undertaker at WrestleMania 27, the latest is that most people in the company knew nothing about it until this weekend. As you can imagine, Brock Lesnar's getting losing the UFC Heavyweight title last night and having a face-to-face encounter with The Undertaker is a big topic of discussion backstage at Bragging Rights.
At this point, Brock Lesnar's future is unclear. His next opponent is rumored to be Frank Mir in what would be their third showdown, with each man holding a victory over the other.
Lesnar received several stitches in this face following his fight with Cain Velasquez and said he did not attend the post-fight press conference because he wanted Velasquez to get the spotlight.
Early indications are that UFC 121 had a tremendous amount of buys, with some predictions saying it could be the second most purchased UFC PPV of all time. Brock Lesnar is a huge draw and the belief is that Cain Velasquez brought in a lot of Mexican American viewers. New UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez will be on comedian George Lopez' show "Lopez Tonight" on TBS Monday night.

There was also an interest in WWE signing Brother Ray as a producer down the line. There was also talk about how WWE could use Team 3D's wrestling academy in Florida to help train some of the newer developmental talents.
In the end, they both wound up re-signing with TNA. The travel schedule in TNA also played a role in their decision to sign with TNA.
